This is one of the better second sets of that tour.

more straw into gold in '72
5 Star ratings are WAY TOOOOO easy to give during this entire tour. One complaint is that the "TUNING" should've been included as the beginning of DS, because that was no "tuning", just the lead up to a FANTASTIC Dark Star. I really like the slower tempo on He's Gone, and the song as a whole stands on it's own as pretty damn good. Shame the whole show isn't here.

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live" at the Strand Lyceum, London, England May 23, 1972.
#############_"Smokin'_72_GRATEFUL DEAD (partial)Show".
Stereo Hi-Fi Sound. Excellent Mix. A "Must Have" for collectors of 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD.
I highly recommend you add this show to your 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it now or you'll be sorry.
The description is incorrect. Below are the songs available on this webpage:
Get the next night too, May 24, 1972 at the Strand Lyceum. Another "Must Have" show.
Eat, Drink, be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the love.
PS: For PC the Internet Archive recommends RealPlayer for streaming and downloading.

Dark Star->Dew Definitive Version
At last: you can hear it again!
This the Dark Star->Morning Dew against which all others should be compared (and inevitably fail). Along with the 5-4-72 Paris Dark Star, this is another European Dark Star that I've memorized completely, note-for-note.
This Dark Star is significantly shorter than the Paris version but, like that Dark Star, contains several discrete, unique and instantly recognizable movements, each of which is perfectly executed by a band whose members are as psychically attuned to one another as any in the history of music.
Also, unlike the Paris Star (which seques into Sugar Mag), this one is spiritually inseparable from the Morning Dew which follows. The segue from the Dark Star into the Dew is as gentle and perfect as a tree frog's egg sliding from a leaf into the stream below, leaving only a jelly crater and ten thousand gently expanding ripples.
This Dew is superior to the Europe '72 version in every aspect. Jerry's guitar accents between the verses are by themselves enough to justify him as one of the greatest lead singer/guitarists in rock history. And then there's the solo. Listen to the tone of Phil's bass!
Footnote: this show also includes the best version of Two Souls in Communion, and I don't believe that has been officially released either.
